Elden Ring‘s website has been updated with new lore, detailing the game’s story and much more. Elden Ring has been the most anticipated game ever since its announcement back in E3 2018, and fans were getting quite impatient about the game.

Lack of development updates was to blame for that, as From Software barely revealed anything after the launch. After the long break, the developers finally revealed the release date at Summer Game Fest.

The release date trailer had everything fans would expect from the game, and much more. There were a lot of familiar elements from the Soulsborne franchise, including the presence of dragons, oversized bosses, and whatnot.

Elden Ring Website Updated With New Lore

Today, Bandai Namco has sneakily updated its Elden Ring website, adding loads of lore information. You can find the excerpt below.

Tarnished of the Lands Between

The Golden Order has been shattered. Throughout the Lands Between, Demigods holding shards of the Elden Ring squabble and make war over the ruins of a perfect realm, now abandoned by the golden guidance of the Greater Will.

As the echoes of this coTnflict thunder in the distance, an outcast arrives. Once, their ancestors called the Lands Between home, but the blessed light of grace was lost to their tribe long ago and they were expelled from the kingdom. They are the Tarnished, and they have returned to claim the Elden Lordship promised to them by legend.

This is the world of ELDEN RING. As a Tarnished, the Lands Between await your exploration. You will ride through the vast fields, gallop over rolling hills, and leap to the top of rocky crags on your ephemeral steed, revealing a world teeming with life and danger.

In the grand fields where your journey begins, mythic creatures prowl the veldts, ineffable horrors lurk in the bogs and marshes, and all manner of soldiers and itinerant warriors are waiting for those who wander unawares. Shy creatures nibble on sweet grasses or scuttle through the underbrush.

Those few inhabitants who are not mad or hostile linger near the broken remnants of cities left behind by the Shattering. They may have answers for you, if you help them. Above them all, ensconced in vast legacies bristling with traps, secrets, and guardians, the Demigods – warped Lords who began as members of a royal and noble family – rule their domains with the unyielding power granted by shards of the Elden Ring.

The guidance of lost graces – should you find them – will put you on a road to re-take these lands from the Demigods through might and magic, but you need not follow their path.

The choice is yours. Do you crave power, or do you seek understanding? Decide for yourself, then build your character as you see fit.

Try dozens of skills and find one to best suit your style. Practice stealth to avoid danger or catch enemies unaware. Use the environment, the weather, and the time of day to gain an advantage. Learn the art of combat , where you must read your enemy’s intentions and a well-timed dodge or parry could be the difference between life and death. Ride your steed into battle against mounted mercenaries and cut them from their horses. Master arcane spells from the masters that still linger among the ruins of the war. Summon familiar spirits to even the odds against you or call on your fellow Tarnished to fight at your side and share the burden as you explore. Or, delve into the complex, bloody history of the Shattering and discover the lost secrets of the Demigods and their kin. All these paths are possible, and more. Ultimately, your journey will be defined by the strength of your own ambition. The greater your goals, the greater the challenge will be. Should you choose to claim the Lands Between as your birthright then yes, you must fight.

And yes, you may die.

But you will return to fight again.

For that is how a champion – or a Lord – is born.

The new lore addition, reveals a lot about the game’s storyline and also touches on the gameplay aspects. With still a few months to go for the game to release, it should be interesting to see what else From Software has to reveal in the days to come.
